Title: Lightning occurs 50 to 100 times a second somewhere on Planet Earth.
Concept: There is always a thunderstorm happening somewhere on Earth.
Detail: Older textbooks suggest at any given time between 1,800 and 2,000 thunderstorms are active on the earth and our planet experiences up to 100 ICs and CGs per second. More recent satellite measurements indicate the number is likely to be closer to 50 per second, but in any case, our atmosphere is very electrically active. Lightning, contrary to the legend, does frequently strike twice in the same place. It is estimated that the Empire State Building is struck on the average of 23 times each year. There is also a forest ranger who was struck by lightning at least seven times in his life - all in different places. (He died of Leukemia!). In Medieval times, when thunder storms threatened, it was a custom in many European villages to have bell ringers in the church towers to ward off the developing thunderstorms. Some enterprising cleric then discovered that over a 33 year period, 386 church towers were blasted by lightning, with 103 bell ringer fatalities. That quaint custom ceased very quickly!
